Infertility testing and treatment


If you’re having problems getting pregnant, we’ll find out why and offer treatment options.

Find care


Infertility is defined as having regular, unprotected sex without getting pregnant for:

  • One year, if you're under the age of 35
  • Six months, if you're age 35 or older

If you’re concerned that you’re infertile, talk with your doctor. Causes of infertility can generally be broken into three categories of causes:

  • Female
  • Male
  • Unknown

The Polyclinic obstetrics and gynecology doctors will work with you to find out why you haven’t been able to get pregnant.

Steps vary by patient and may include:

  • Physical exams
  • Complete review of your health history
  • Ultrasound of the lower belly
  • Blood tests
  • Hysterosalpingogram (dye test of the uterus and fallopian tubes)
  • Sperm count (measures the quality of a man’s semen and sperm)

Our goal is to identify the reasons for infertility, offer treatment options and/or suggest further testing.

We also offer basic treatments to help with infertility. These include:

  • Lifestyle changes
  • Medications
  • Intrauterine insemination (sperm is placed in the uterus with a small straw)
  • Some surgeries

For more complex cases, we’ll refer you to a specialist for more testing and treatments.
